|This module comes with our USB Field Upgrade and Configuration Port! We recommend connecting it to a computer BEFORE YOU INSTALL and using our support app "m4cconnect" to do a quick firmware update check. M4cconnect as well as all other information regarding USB update and configuration can be found at www.mods4cars.com/usb. You can even configure and activate your favorite module functions and settings on screen before the module is installed in the car! It is a good idea to permanently install the USB cable with the module in the car, leaving the computer plug in an easily accessible spot for later use with a Wifi/3G/4G connected laptop.|
IMPORTANT TROUBLESHOOTING TIPS
If the top does not work properly or at all after installing the module, these tips can be very helpful:
• 1) Turn Function 1 (Main Switch) off (Setting 0). The module will be completely passive. If the problem still persists and the top won't work, check all connections. Please also check the green DATA LED on the module!
• 2) Function 2 now has a valet mode (Setting 2) on many modules. Valet mode completely disables opening of the top. Check the setting for function 2 and make sure the module is NOT in valet mode!
IMPORTANT: Not all modules have the valet mode! Please check the Operation and Programming Manual!
FUNCTION OF THE DATA LED
The DATA LED shows the module status and helps troubleshooting issues during installation:
• When the ignition is ON: The LED should BLINK (flash) in a regular pattern (about 1x per second). This indicates that the module is receiving data and should work OK.
• When the ignition is OFF: The LED should BLINK (flash) as long as the data bus is still active and turn off after a while (max 5 min) indicating that the car has entered stand-by (sleep) mode.
• If the LED is permanently lit with the ignition ON, the module is NOT receiving data from the top controller and all connectors should be checked.
• If the LED does NOT light up at all when turning the ignition ON, the module is either not getting power or not receiving ANY data. All connectors should be checked.
|Installation - Steps 1-3|
|1. IMPORTANT: Turn off ignition and pull key out before continuing! Open trunk and remove bottom cover.|
|2. Remove the styrofoam carrier or (or spare wheel). Remove the two screws (1) on each side of the back panel. Pull the center plug out of the attachment bolt (2) and remove the screw (3) on the side panel.|
|3. Take back panel out.|
|Installation - Steps 4-6|
|4. Now there are three screws on the inside and two on top of the plastic cover over the trunk lock. Remove all five.|
|5. Take the cover off. Also remove the attachment bolt (1) all the way in the corner and the square rubber bumper (2).|
|6. Remove the lid off the outside of the casing (1) (it's snapped into place), then disconnect the top and bottom part of the side panel which are hooked together at (2) to reveal the convertible top controller (3) on the inside. Take it out of its holder by pushing the top in the direction of the arrow.|
|Installation - Steps 7-9|
|7. Pull the top control unit along with its wiring harness down towards the center of the trunk. This allows easy access to the wires.|
|8. Remove the plug from the controller by pushing down the locking latch (1) while flipping the white lever (2) over in the direction of the arrow.|
|9. Pull the plug out and set the control unit aside.|
|Installation - Steps 10-12|
|10. Connect the supplied Wiring adapter to the top control unit. Make sure the plug latches in place and the locking lever is in the locked position as shown.|
|11. Now connect the plug from the car to the socket on the other end of the wiring adapter, also making sure it latches into place. Then connect the smartTOP Module to the small plug (1) and (optionally) connect the USB cable for later configuration/updates via laptop without having to take everything apart again.|
|12. Clip the top controller back in its place, then stow the smartTOP and the wiring harness along the side of the top controller. Best solution is to attach the wiring harness with a zip tie (1) to the corner of the top controller, so it can't be pinched by the rooftop mechanics (see next step!).|
|Installation - Steps 13-14|
|13. WARNING: To avoid jamming, do not put the wiring harness, connectors or the module close or under the black round bar (marked with 1) as this is part of the roof mechanics. You can use the supplied velcro pad to secure the module on top of or right next to the top controller.|
|14. If desired, run the USB cable to an easily accessible spot in the trunk. Also avoid running it anywhere close to the roof mechanics. Put everything together in reverse order. Done.|
